Mac OS X public server hosting problem

Post by Bacon » Sun Jun 12, 2011 2:31 am

I've been trying to host my own public server for awhile now, I really don't understand it and I'm having a really hard time. I got my configuration fle perfect, I've port forwarded a port for my server but when I run all the commands in the terminal all of this comes up:

Code: Select all

There is a voting arbiter with the following settings:
	vote time is 60 seconds
	veto time is 2 seconds
	votes required are 2
	vote percentage necessary is 50.099998
	vote repeat time is 300 seconds
	available voters is initially set to 9
Running a public server with the following settings:
	public address is bacon.dyndns-mail.com:5154
CURLOPT_URL is : http://bzflag.org/master-bans.txt
Loaded master ban list from http://bzflag.org/master-bans.txt
	listening on 0.0.0.0:5154
	with title of "TESTING FIRST TIME HOSTING"
CURLOPT_URL is : http://my.bzflag.org/db/
It says its publicly hosting but It shows my IP for the server not the bacon.dyndns-mail.com in which I have it set, and it doesn't even show the public description. I've asked people to try and join but they say that the server is not found. Can anybody help me I'm getting really frustrated with this...

The one with your IP and no description is just being detected locally via a multicast discovery (or some other method - not sure) on your LAN. The game client automatically detects servers on the LAN running on port 5154.

Check the list itself and see if you see your server: http://my.bzflag.org/db/?action=LIST

What's this?

Code: Select all

awesome.command ; exit;
Anyhoo...

IIRC the server will listen on the default ip address of the box, so 0.0.0.0 is ok unless you're doing some NAT stuff. I assume you have DNS records for bacon.dyndns-mail.com pointing to the ip address of your server? nslookup this domain I get:

Code: Select all

blackbox:/home/grans # nslookup bacon.dyndns-mail.com
Server:         203.114.168.2
Address:        203.114.168.2#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   bacon.dyndns-mail.com
Address: 65.19.24.77
But I can't connect bzf client to this ip on port 5154
What port-forwarding is going on, and have you checked your firewall to ensure it allows tcp & udp traffic on port 5154?

Have you also checked if your ISP allows you to host servers?
